End AIDS India campaign completed three years of its operation this year. The campaign was launched in early 2016 with the hope to connect to a larger audience and help create an alternative funding
mechanism. The saying ‘big changes start with small steps’ is true for the campaign. The campaign apart from bridging the funding gap is enabling a huge population to access information, get connected to treatment, and more importantly, contribute towards building a stigma-free and healthier India. The campaign in its endeavour to make an equitable and stigma-free India has connected to more than 5 million population.
The campaign reaches Indians across the globe to raise awareness and raises funds for HIV. As Alliance India magnifies its portfolio with HIV as an epicentre to other co-infections like tuberculosis, hepatitis C & B along with working on various research projects to reduce discrimination and stigma, the campaign intends to scale up and provide a holistic healthy living opportunity to vulnerable populations. Hosted by Alliance India and partnered by Humsafar Trust, Lepra Society, and Vasavya Mahila Mandali, the campaign in this financial year was perhaps much more co-ordinated between the partners.
